Las Terrazas, Ambergris Caye, Belize
Nestled along the glistening, white sand beach and Caribbean Sea, the Las Terrazas Belize luxury resort on beautiful Ambergris Caye is pure bliss. Lounge under gently swaying palm trees on your own tropical beach with a Belizean rum punch. A short flight from Belize City to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye — the only real town on Belize’s largest island — it’s a 10-minute boat ride across the blue Caribbean water to the dock at Las Terrazas. Rows of oversize lounge chairs, kayaks and Hobie Cats line the wide expanse of beach, with the Mediterranean-modern buildings of the main resort just beyond the palm trees.
Facilities & Activities:
For a boutique hotel, Las Terrazas offers myriad water sports and outdoor activities, from diving and snorkelling excursions to the Blue Hole and Shark Ray Alley (there’s an on-site PADI five-star dive shop), to bike tours and horseback riding in Bacab Eco Park. Meals are served in the chic O restaurant, which has a high-ceilinged dining room and a breezy terrace overlooking the pool. The menu has an international bent (pizza, pasta, wraps and Mexican favourites), fresh fish dishes and Belizean classics. Opt for the typically Belizean fry jacks in place of toast at breakfast — they’re especially good with butter, honey and the strong coffee.
Rooms & suites:
All 37 rooms are housed in low-rise whitewashed buildings that overlook the beach and dock, or the 70-foot lap pool, which is dotted with semi-submerged lounge chairs. Room layouts vary throughout the property, but some are split-level, with a living room (complete with two sofas and a flat-screen TV), a dining room, a fully equipped kitchen and a kingsize bedroom upstairs. Although the look is decidedly modern — lots of sleek black and white — Belizean artwork on the walls and colourful furnishings add some local flair. The large, furnished terraces overlooking the resort grounds are welcome spots for afternoon sun worship in private.
A local island favourite for its fusion of international, Caribbean and Central American cuisine, O Restaurant offers seasonal menus showcasing fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Savor our Ambergris Caye restaurant’s signature seafood risotto with fresh shrimp and locally-caught snapper or the filet mignon seared to perfection. Enjoy nightly dinner specials and indulge the senses with O Restaurant’s famed, Bailey’s-infused chocolate sea urchin. With its sea-inspired décor and sophisticated ambience, O Restaurant is the perfect San Pedro Belize restaurant setting for a romantic dinner or good food with friends

Our oppinion: In Belize for sure on of the best resorts ! Nice beach and friendly staff ! The service at Las Terrazas was impeccable. The resort property is small and charming. Behind a grove of sheltering palms sits a whitewashed oasis of modern condo dwellings and a sleek relaxing pool. Dont miss to arrange a snorkel excursion.
